Abstract

Joseph Smith’s revelations show people that they were literal spirit children of God who had lived with Him in the premortal realm, and that God had a plan for them to return to His presence to be like Him. The Book of Mormon refers to this plan by many names, each of which can help people to better understand God’s plan for His children, as well as God's character. The most common name for the plan in the Book of Mormon is the “plan of redemption.” This name reminds readers that the plan offers redemption from sin and death.
